Description

Junior Specialist – Human Memory Research

Description

The lab of Arielle Tambini in the Department of Neurobiology and Behavior at UCI is seeking applicants for a Junior Specialist position. Research in the lab focuses on human memory consolidation, examining how different time periods and neural mechanisms after learning support long-term memory. The lab uses multiple approaches, including measurements of brain activity (fMRI, EEG) and behavior, as well as the application of external manipulations to modify memory (TMS and behavioral manipulations).

Responsibilities consist of both performing research associated with ongoing lab projects and lab managerial tasks. Research duties include recruiting and scheduling participants, aiding in the development of behavioral tasks (programming in MATLAB or Python), data collection for behavioral, fMRI, and other experiments, performing data analysis, and preparation of findings for presentation. Managerial duties will include training new researchers, management of IRB protocols, and general organizational support.

An undergraduate degree (in Neuroscience, Psychology, Biology, Engineering, Computer Science, or related area) is required. Prior relevant lab experience is highly desired, including prior experience working with human subjects, collection of behavioral, MRI, EEG and/or TMS data, analysis of behavioral or neural data, and programming experience (MATLAB and/or Python, Bash).

Qualified candidates should submit (1) curriculum vitae, including previous research and work experience (scientific or not) (2) a brief cover letter summarizing prior research experience and interests and (3) contact information for three references to the following recruitment:
